How Do I Change the Language in Adobe Acrobat?
(NA/ Images)

By default, Adobe Acrobat runs in English. All of the commands and interface components are in English. If you speak another language, changing the language settings can make it easier to use your application. Adobe Acrobat comes with a number of languages from which to select. You can also install a variety of languages using your Adobe Acrobat disc.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Launch Adobe Acrobat and click the "Edit" menu located on the top. Scroll down the pop-up menu and click "Preferences." This launches the Preferences console.

  2. 2

    Click "International" from the "Categories" list and choose the language you want to use from the "Application Language" drop-down list.

  3. 3

    Click "OK" to save the changes and close Adobe Acrobat.

  4. 4

    Relaunch Adobe Acrobat. The application should now be running in the language you selected.

Tips and warnings

  • If you do not see the language you want to use, install it from the original Adobe Acrobat disc.
  • If multiple users of different nationalities will be using Adobe Acrobat 8 on the same computer, select “Choose at Application Startup” from the “Application Language” drop-down list. This option allows any user to select which language the application will use when Adobe Acrobat 8 is started.
  • Changing the Adobe Acrobat language only changes the command and interface language. It does not convert PDF files to the language you selected.
